Electronic Frontier Canada (EFC) was founded to ensure that the
principles embodied in the
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
are protected as new computing, communications, and information
EFC is working to shape Canada's computing and communications infrastructure
and the policies that govern it, in order to maintain privacy and
other democratic values. Our work focuses on the establishment of:
- clear institutional policies and new laws that guarantee citizens' basic
rights and freedoms as new computing, communications, and information
- a policy of common carriage requirements for all network providers
so that all forms of speech and expression, no matter how
controversial, will be carried without discrimination.
- a diverse electronic community that enables all citizens to have
a voice in the information age.
